Aromatherapy Stretch Mark Recipes

Aromatherapy for Stretch MarksKeeping the skin around the abdomen and thighs moisturized and nourished can help minimize and possibly prevent stretch marks during pregnancy.

Keeping skin well moisturized is also important when losing a significant amount of weight. It can help to minimize the appearance of stretch marks and can help maintain the elasticity of the skin.

Countless women have sung high praise for the use of Cocoa Butter to help prevent stretch marks. Shea Butter is also a wonderful choice.

As AromaWeb's Aromatherapy During Pregnancy page discusses, there is concern regarding the use of essential oils during pregnancy (read the information provided on that page for details). What's nice about the below recipes is that they can be made without the use of essential oils. Plus, natural Cocoa Butter is deliciously fragrant on its own.

Cocoa Butter Stretch Mark Recipe

Cocoa Butter that has not been deodorized possesses a rich, delicate aroma of cocoa. If there are essential oils that you do plan to utilize , consider getting deodorized cocoa butter so that the natural aroma does not clash with your choice of essential oils.

Ingredients:

Directions: In a double boiler, gently melt the Cocoa Butter. Then, stir in the Avocado Oil. If adding essential oil, carefully pour the mixture into a small bowl and allow the mixture to cool for a couple minutes before adding the essential oil. Essential oils can quickly evaporate when exposed to hot temperatures, so it's important to let the mixture cool a little first. Then, carefully pour the mixture into the jar, and allow to cool. Depending on the temperature of your home, your butter may be firmer or softer than you desire. If this recipe is too firm for your preference, simply add a bit more oil. If the recipe is too soft, then use less oil.

Substitutions: This blend may be adapted for use with other essential oils that are said to be helpful with stretch marks or with your other favorite essential oils, but remember to use only essential oils that are safe and beneficial for the skin. 

Instructions for Use: Apply to your upper thighs and abdomen at least twice daily. Avoid genitals, and immediately discontinue use if any sensitivity occurs.
